What's special about thuya wood

Here at Carved Culture, we love thuya wood and here's why: not only color extremely unique, but it has a burr grain which is like no other wood despite being a member of the cedar family. It has a beautiful pine scented aroma that adds to its attraction, it is an exotic wood that is exclusively grown in Morocco, northwest Africa. The people living here earn their income from either fishing or selling thuya wood. It has so much character that it can form as a standalone ornamental piece.

This rare conifer tree is harvested not by its trunk or branches but from the actual roots and new growth. They are around 70 years old before they are cut. Even today oil is extracted and is used in aromatherapy. It can be used to make any type of small or large furniture such as coasters, boxes, business card holders, pen pots, dominoes, magazines stands, etc. With thuya wood the possibilities are endless and it will always make a unique gift!
